If you haven't read the front page article in todays A-J titled "Study Stirs Controversy About Abuse," you must do so. It reports of two Texas Tech sociology professors who did a survey of 600 college students, called it a "study," and concluded that the more fundamental the Christian beliefs college students have, the more likely they are to commit domestic abuse.
According to the A-J report, Jerome Koch, a Tech sociology professor who conducted the "study," said that "there is a sense of entitlement that can come through with religion that can lead someone to hurt someone."
Koch, who primarily studies college students, admitted that there is a need for increased study of this area.
